Donald Trump spoke for the last time to the American people as President of the United States. This is his first speech after the invasion of the Capitol by his followers.

"As I complete my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have accomplished together," Trump said.

"This week we are launching a new government and praying for its success to keep America safe and prosperous," he said, adding: "We also want them to have luck, a very important word."

"We did what we had to do and much more. "Above all, we have reaffirmed the sacred idea that in America, the government speaks to the people," Trump said.

He is committed to a constant presence on the political scene, noting that his movement "is just beginning".
"Now, as I prepare to hand over power to a new administration, I want you to know that the movement we started is in its infancy," he said.

The outgoing US president, taking stock of his tenure, was proud today because he "united" the world against China and did not provoke any war in the four years he remained in office.

"We have reactivated our alliances and united the nations of the world to face China as never before," the Republican mogul said in his farewell speech, according to excerpts released.

"I am very proud because I was the first president in decades not to start a new war," he added.

Trump longed for the pre-pandemic economy, which he called a "miracle," and seemed to suggest that the strong economy had returned despite rising unemployment.

For months, Trump has refused to admit that he lost the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden, choosing instead to re-ignite conspiracy theories, assuming he actually won.

It is a tradition for presidents to say goodbye at the end of their term. Trump preferred the video, which is unusual.

In the wake of the Jan. 6 incendiary speech, which was followed by episodes of violence that stigmatized the US Republic, the outgoing US President plans to travel to his luxurious mansion in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, just hours before taking the oath of office. on Wednesday.
